I hope the title of this thread is confusing enough. Here is what I want to do-- I have a DVD of a recital I played a year or so ago. I would like to take some still pictures from various points in the video footage. I made the DVD with footage from a borrowed mini DV camera and on a borrowed mac using iDVD or whatever its called. So nothing real fancy. (I don’t use a mac, and don’t have a DV camera and I don’t even have the original tapes, so I can’t re-record everything into my computer again, which would be real easy.. ) If there is some program that can extract a still picture from a dvd, that would be the easiest choice I suppose. But my thinking is, if I could just extract everything from the dvd into a huge MPEG, or avi, or whatever, I could easily save some stills with the video editing software I use now. I understand one needs decoders for this?? I don’t know jack. But you already knew that.
